Green Bay Packers Could Have Significant Interest In Shea McClellin

Could Shea McClellin be a first rounder?

The Green Bay Packers are in the market for help among the front seven, and even though Ted Thompson always drafts for best player available instead of always drafting for needs, they're almost certainly to pick up some help along the front seven in the first two rounds. One player whose stock has been rising rapidly is Boise State defensive end/outside linebacker Shea McClellin, who projects to 3-4 outside linebacker at the NFL level.

McClellin has had a grade as low as the third round by some publications, but he's creeped up into the first round in others. He might be a more natural fit with the Packers than USC's Nick Perry and Clemson's Andre Branch, leading some to project him to the Packers at No. 28. On Thursday, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel had a great story on McClellin and his backround, in which he said the Packers have 'significant interest' in the Boise State star.

I highly recommend clicking the above link and reading the entire story, but this is what really stuck out to me.

McClellin saw snaps at defensive end, outside linebacker, some inside linebacker and even a pinch of nickel. Of course, most of McClellin's damage came as a violent pass rusher off the edge.

McClellin is versatile and he fits the bill for what the Packers need, but do you think he's a first-round talent?
